What is it?

The Alternative Protein Show is a networking event where all the players in the New Protein Landscape are invited to share their products, initiatives, and ideas for the future of protein. Entities include plant-based and cell-based protein, ingredients, technology, incubators & accelerators, NGOs, VC funds, government agencies and more.


The current food system is unsustainable; it’s destroying the environment and unable to meet future demand. How can we feed nine billion people enough protein in a way that is affordable, healthy, and good for the environment?

The Alternative Protein Show is an event unlike any other in this industry: the emphasis is on the networking, meeting people, and making connections. Sessions are optional, and instead of panels, you can choose from any one of the many “deep dive” sessions led by experts in their field.

Protein Map

We all need protein, but how we address that need and its toll on the environment depends entirely on our ability to adapt. This is where science and agriculture can come together to help us reduce our impact on the planet and contribute to our overall health and wellbeing.
